Since this is clearly a request to developers, I suggest posting a link to the relevant ticket(s).

tl;dr: Please refrain from adding new strings that require translations
to MediaWiki and deployed extensions until further notice.

Due to changes we are making in the way our translation systems process
data we will be temporarily disabling the auto deployment of newly
translated content until further notice.  The goal of these changes will
be to improve the evaluation of content submitted to our translation

This means developers should not merge new translatable strings into
MediaWiki Core nor Wikimedia deployed extensions until we re-enable the
system. This is to prevent longer term issues where local wiki admins
overwrite a string and thus prevent updates from new and improved

We apologize for any inconvenience this delay in service may cause and
will alert you as soon as this maintenance is completed.
